    Today at work, we started having serious discussions about what to do to prepare for a default. It is because of statements like this.

    I honestly can't blame you. Cantor is hellbent on preventing any deal whatsoever. Boehner needs to take back control for the sake of not only his party but country.

    Though maybe if Cantor and McConnell weren't too busy playing politics, a deal could be made.

    It's a fantastic line. It would have worked even better in 2008 when there was all that running around by the GOP candidates when they were trying to say they were the next Ronald Reagan.

    Even Reagan raised taxes. He did so I believe seven times.

    Though it seems to me that the GOP has turned more to the philosophy of Ayn Rand than Ronald Reagan these days. I could be wrong though.
